Anyway, last Thursday he woke up in the middle of the night and was crying about the pain on his tummy. I already had the feeling that it could have been the stubborn POOP (no, he's not constipated but he poops like an adult...meaning it comes out BIG and long...kkkkk), but seeing him cringe in pain while shouting " Mama, 아퍼! (A-po...meaning IT HURTS!)", made me wake up my hubby so we can rush little Zach to the nearest hospital. After getting an x-ray and getting a consultation with St. Mary's Hospital's E.R. pediatrician, we found out that little Zach had a couple of poops that needed to get out. He was given some kind of medicine so he could poop right away. After a couple of minutes inside the comfort room, little Zach left the E.R. with a big smile on his face and was happily blowing off flying kisses to everyone at the emergency room....kkkkk. How I wish the story ended there but there's more.
The next day I woke up in the middle of the night because I could hear little Zach shivering, I checked his temperature but there was no fever. Thinking that he was just COLD I covered him up with his blanket but he didn't stop from shivering. I woke up my hubby (in case you're wondering my hubby sleeps like a LOG....unless you HIT him on the face he wouldn't be aware of what's happening around him....a complete opposite of how I sleep, I always wake up with the slightest disturbing sound around me) and insisted that we had to rush little Zach to the E.R. again. On our way to the hospital, little Zach stopped shivering after sweating buckets so we decided to just head back home and let little Zach take a rest. At home, he started to have fever but as soon as I gave him the medicine for it he felt better. So we went back to bed and charged everything to experience.
However, later on that day (whew that's Friday!) my little one started shivering again and this time he was so HOT. I called my husband and informed him that I will bring little Zach to his pediatrician. But, the pediatrician advised me to bring little Zach to Uijeongbu's St.Mary's Hospital right away because his fever had been on and off for a very long time already and the sound of his cough is not getting any better too. So I rushed little Zach to the bigger hospital and after several examinations he was diagnosed with a slight PNEUMONIA.I said slight because the doctor said it wasn't that bad and proper medication can help my little one get better soon. But, there's a catch.....little Zach's fever should be completely gone in 2 days or else he will be admitted at the hospital. In order to help little Zach get over his fever, the doctor gave instructions for little Zach to have an I.V. for 5 hours. While my hubby rushed back to his company to finish his work (he's off to Turkey this week....tsk tsk tsk!), I stayed with little Zach. Since I was still having trouble with my terrible case of morning sickness I kept running to the nearest restroom to throw up so I had to ask the nurse in charge to look after my little prince. I was very tired and I had no one to rely on....but I'm very glad that my little Zach is feeling better now. He still has a couple of check-ups left this week and a couple of medicines to take but at least the fever is GONE and I hope it will be gone for good. I don't think I can manage rushing little Zach to the E.R. alone while my hubby is off to a very long business trip to Turkey. I'm keeping my fingers crossed....I hope this week will be a very HEALTHY and SAFE week for me and little Zach....well, of course that doesn't include my battle with morning sickness.....kkkkk.
